Down Goes the Internet

Posted: May 14, 2023 by Nazim in Episode!

This week’s episode covers two cases, Gonzales v. Google and Twitter v. Taamneh, which appear to cover broad, important issues at first (the recruitment of terrorism on the internet), but seem more likely to affect narrow, trivial issues later on (how Youtube recommends videos for you).  This episode also talks voting, Legend of Zelda and Shake Shack’s Tiramisu Milk Shake.  Law starts at (5:30), but the milkshake gets reference all the way through, my dog.

No Way FDA

Posted: April 23, 2023 by Nazim in Episode!

This week’s episode is jam-packed with current events, as it covers Clarence Thomas’ recent ethics controversy, followed by Alliance for Hippocratic Oath v. United States FDA, which asks whether the Court can overrule FDA approval for abortion medication a few decades later.  This episode was recorded a few hours before the decision came out, but still goes into detail on the merits of the issue and how it compares to previous abortion cases to help explain the final opinion.  Law starts at (2:35).

The Seminal Case of “A” v. “The”

Posted: December 18, 2022 by Nazim in Episode!

There are no Christmas themed cases this year, so Brett and Nazim usher in our holiday break by covering In re Grand Jury, a case with anonymous parties, no facts, and the Supreme Court seemingly poised to overturn a generally reasonable 9th Circuit Decision.  Let the good times roll. The law starts at (9:23), some scheduling announcements start at (06:50), and Nazim’s Gift List starts right after the theme song.  The Citizen’s Guide to the Supreme Court will return sometime late winter/early spring.
